Our Mission

Kids' Haven is an organization dedicated to serving the unique needs of grieving children and their families through support and education.

The foundation of Kids' Haven's philosophy is built on the beliefs that grief is a natural reaction to   the death of a loved one; within each person is the capacity to heal; caring and acceptance assist the healing process; each person grieves in his/her own way and in his/own time; and sharing with others in a safe and supportive environment allows children to learn about grief and to participate fully in their own journey to recovery.

Our History

Kids’ Haven was founded as a community outreach project of the Junior League of Lynchburg. In 1998 we were chartered as an independent not-for-profit organization with the sole mission of serving, through the provision of support and educational programming, the unique needs of children grieving the death of a person who was significant in their lives.
